Charlie Loudermilk Park Opens March 31
We’re ushering in spring with the grand (re)opening of Charlie Loudermilk Park. The park, which sits in the heart of Buckhead at the famous triangle of Peachtree Road, Roswell Road and Sardis Way, offers Buckhead workers, visitors and residents a relaxing spot to have lunch, take a shopping break and enjoy the city.
The park will feature greenspace, patio seating, a waterfall feature, new walkways, lighting, trees and flowers, and a statue in honor of local philanthropist and Aaron’s founder Charlie Loudermilk. The park’s piece de resistance – a 50-foot clock tower with a belfry that will chime on the hour – gives the urban park a historical feel and is reminiscent of the one found at Mr. Loudermilk’s alma mater – the University of North Carolina.
The park will help to ease pedestrian access to Buckhead Atlanta and the Buckhead Theatre, with expanded sidewalks to cater to people walking around this busy corridor.
On March 31, the Buckhead CID will host an invitation only grand re-opening and ribbon cutting to mark the completion of the park’s redesign and construction. Following the event, the park will be ready to host its first visitors at 1 p.m.
